In Trip Reports by Neil SatterfieldLeave a Comment

I woke up to cloudy skis this morning but no rain.  It was a busy day of checking out different locations and climbing a couple of Via Ferratas.  I also dove into Saint Moritz to purchase REGA Helicopter Rescue insurance for Tony and Mich.  Tomorrow I will head back to Zurich to pick up Tony and Mich and get the trip started.  All in all another great day in Pontresina.  Stay tuned.

An exciting suspension bridge.

Via Ferratta #2.

Wild cable bridge.

Anyone need a rest?

This cable ladder was like a spider web.

The nearby waterfall.

On the chairlift ride down I caught this shot of some serious avalanche mitigation fences about town.
